I do a lot of drawings of animals, especially cats. I have always loved cats and dogs and other animals. Especially cats, as I grew up with them. They still play an important part in my life, and in our family, humans are outnumbered. Also like to sketch when I'm out and about. Sit in a café watching people buzz around a busy market. Sketching faces I see in restaurants, on trains, in waiting rooms. Imagining their lives. When you do this it is amazing how many people look like characters from a Tintin book.
